International Schools in Japan

March 27, 2021

There is very good selection of international schools in Japan with a wide range of curriculum with a diverse student group.  They can be expensive and limited spaces.  Kindly research each school and find the right fit for your children.  The required time to prepare the documents needed for each school takes time, hence advisable to apply at least 4-6 months in advance.  As documents differ for each school, can receive information through their website or calling them directly.  It will be wise to get prior school documents from countries they have attended or letters of recommendation.  You may need a physical examination and entrance testing.  Many of the schools have a minimum English language requirement which are tested by person or by voice/video calls.  Besides the English language testing there are interviews for both student and parent.
